According to Deadline, the legal move was confirmed by a Fairfax County clerk and involved Heard’s legal team asking the LAPD to “produce the books, documents, records, electronically stored information and tangible things” regarding a 2016 domestic disruption. involving her and the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star.
The outlet noted that Heard’s lawyers sent a similar subpoena in January. Although the one filed this month requested body camera footage from officers who responded to the house Depp and Heard had previously shared. “We do not comment on pending or ongoing litigation,” an LAPD public information official said on Thursday.
Heard requested the documents to determine whether officers “followed LAPD policy, procedures and / or protocols in responding to the call at the Eastern Columbia Building on May 21, 2016, regarding Ms. Heard.” She requested “all documents and communications” from the officers’ investigation, including “all documents that show deletions, modifications or viewing of this for images uploaded during this time.”
Depp sued his ex-wife for $ 50 million for libel and she counter-attacked. A lawsuit is slated for 2022.

After his volatile relationship with Heard ended, Depp sued the outlet for calling him a “female drummer” in a lengthy affair that released much of the couple’s dirty laundry and ultimately resulted in a loss for Depp.
